I have been working at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

People are exceptional
If you want flexibility start your own business or get with a smaller company. Both have associated risks of course.

Cons

Shareholders rule the board, who rule the management, who rule the worker; all in the name of upper mandate so they have no personal responsibility. That is the way it is with many corporations, detached from the worker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take responsibility for your choices instead of acting powerless to do the right thing.

    Pros

    Stability, job growth and advancement

    Cons

    salaries, bonuses, rewards are not based on performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the top performers, don't give the non-performers the same pay raise as an employee that goes above and beyond the job scope.

    Great Company to work for IN THE PAST. Andy Liveris destroyed the culture and great values that existed for 100+ years

    I worked at Dow Chemical full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities if you work hard. Unfortunately, you will have to stay in one place for many years to be considered for promotion. Great company to learn, develop skills ..... then move to other company for better jobs and promotion.

    Cons

    Mr. Liveris (BOD chairman, CEO and President) and his staff manages the company at his own pace. No chance for the company to move ahead in the chemical industry as far as he is in there.
    Constant people change at top levels and multiple 'blue prints' changes make your work difficult and less stable.
    Every five years the management is in panic and let people go in bunches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Mr. Liveris. Free the company of a dictator.
